We dine here several times a month. Tough to find a better venue than this new waterfront Bistro. Lots of entertainment on the water/marina while you dine. Decor is cool and unique. Some outdoor dining in summer. Awesome staff.

We were very impressed with the atmosphere, the food choices and quality. The service was great! We would definitely eat here again. We were a party of 7 and the fish tacos were excellent, the burgers and meatloaf club sandwich were awesome as well.
